Halloween Elvis, Peter Tracy's first theatre production, was introduced at the Puppet House in Branford, Connecticut in the summer of 1999. Halloween Elvis musically traces Peter鈥檚 catholic school choir practices (He鈥檚 Got the Whole World in His Hands) and his early attraction to the opposite sex (Rock & Roll Child). Through young adulthood, he imitates various cult musicians - Al Jolson, Burt Ives and Roy Orbison. His description of meeting the Buster Brothers, two local jazz legends, is expressed with the Bobby Buster Goodtime Blues, which serves as a tribute to these two special musical influences in his life.
He re-enacts his performance in a New York City Halloween parade with an actual parade through the audience and depicts on stage what happens to him as his limo is barraged with "Elvis Fans." That traumatic experience (to a claustrophobic) inspired No More Elvis. As he returns home, after the night of surprises, he reconciles with his wife as he sings and they waltz to Dance with Me Dear.
The final message, Halloween Do's summarizes the theme of Halloween Elvis: it鈥檚 never too late to actually act on a life鈥檚 dream.
Phinsider Flash Poll Will the Miami Dolphins Defense Be Better Or Worse In 2016 Another disappointing season has passed us by and now we are in the midst of the dead period of the offseason. The flurry of the NFL free agency period has passed as has the annual excitement that is the NFL draft. Now we are only left with those few free agents floating around out there looking for a home waiting for a team to come calling. Some will be snatched up in the coming weeks as we head into Summer while others will load up on extra vacationing, waiting for a team to "develop" a need for a body to fill a hole when either a player does not work out in camp or a player goes down in camp or even into the season. Some players are without a home due to just their overall lack of talent at the NFL level while others are getting up in years and teams tend to want to get younger and cheaper even if it means putting a player with some life left to his game on the couch at home for a few games or maybe even for good. The Dolphins are no different than the rest of the NFL except that we are once again one of the teams that experienced a coaching staff turnover. With that we now have a new head coach, Adam Gase and a new defensive coordinator, Vance Joseph, as well as a slew of other new defensive assistants. Along with those moves came a flurry of player moves. There was a trade that brought new faces to the defense, then the free agent signings and of course some surprising cuts. The draft came and went but the Dolphins seemed to focus on offense, overlooking many positions of needs, at least in the eyes of many fans. So as a fan, with all you know now, "Will the Miami Dolphins defense be better or worse in 2016?".
